Twenty-three years ago, during a search for a pre-school for our daughter, my husband and I grew increasingly concerned and frustrated by the lack of schools which promoted academic excellence and proudly celebrated Christian values. Through this experience, Tabernacle School was born. We are a school where Christ is placed at the centre of learning and there is a holistic understanding of the needs of our children.
Our holistic provision is underpinned by a principle I am passionate about - no significant learning can take place without significant relationships; it is this relationship which inspires and motivates maximum learning and promotes respect for each other in the school community and beyond. Our unique approach and emphasis on pastoral care has allowed students from diverse cultures and backgrounds to join our school community, something I am very proud of.
One of my favourite scriptures is Jeremiah 29:11:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
My hope is for each student to know that God has a plan for their lives, and they have a unique opportunity at Tabernacle School where anything is possible if they are prepared to face challenges and work hard. From their time spent with us, they will find it both a fruitful and rewarding experience as they develop the knowledge, skills, and characteristics needed for their life-long journey of learning.
